Sitting in a Social Studies PD today on Inquiry Design Model and WONDERing how Wonderopolis is utilized in other classrooms as part of Inquiry Based Learning. I'm an Instructional Coach working to provide support for teachers, and Wonderopolis is always a go-to resource to get kids starting to ask questions. I'm always left with questions though.
- Is Wonderopolis a resource when looking to answer a question?
- Is it a starting point for those struggling with what question to ask?
- Is it an answer, or simply a stop on the journey?
My guess is it's all of the above and more. That's how we've used it, now and in the past, and it's always a trustworthy place to return. If you haven't checked into this resource within your Inquiry Based Teaching, check it out. Paired with Wonderopolis, the sky is the limit!
